MANILA, Philippines--Ten Philippine high school students will head for Atlanta, Georgia this summer to represent the country in Intel's annual Science and Engineering Fair.

Intel held an exhibit last Friday in Tagaytay City showcasing the 113 science projects selected in this year's finals out of the 3,500 project entries submitted nationwide.

This year's winners included two teams of three members each ? one from the Philippine Science High School (PSHS) in Quezon City and another from the Gingoog City National High School in Misamis Oriental.

The PSHS team won for their research project that involves the construction of a mechanical prototype of a "micro tremor" recorder.

The team from Gingoog City, meanwhile, won for its comparative study of mangrove species in Pangasihon Forest in their province.

Four individual winners were also selected from the following schools: Ballesteros National High School in Cagayan, Visayas State University Laboratory High School in Leyte, Quantum Academy in General Santos City and Don Alejandro Roces Sr. Science and Technology High School in Quezon City.

All 10 students will fly to the US for the international Intel Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) to be held on May 11 to 14.

Now on its eleventh year, the Intel Science and Engineering Fair in the Philippines is sponsored by Intel and organized by the Department of Education.

Two individual Filipino students (from PSHS in Cagayan Valley and Capiz National High School in Roxas City) both won fourth place for their research projects in microbiology and behavioral and social science in last year's ISEF international competition held in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

A team from PSHS main campus in Quezon City likewise won fourth place for a project that looks into the useful properties of the nudibranch, a kind of mollusk, for tumor research.
